Case Studies With EC-Drill Technology®
EC-Drill® - Instant kick detection in GoM
Learn how a multi-national operator recently used EC-Drill®’s instant kick detection service to complement and enhance conventional kick detection methods during deep-water exploratory drilling in the Gulf of Mexico.
EC-Drill® benefits displayed on Shah Deniz
Learn how BP drilled a top-hole section on the Caspian’s Shah Deniz field through hazardous formations in terms of shallow water/gas flow from a fixed platform usin EC-Drill technology®
Case Studies With RMR Technology®
1. BP, Caspian Sea
Problems with shallow formations forced BP to abandon its West Azeri template in the Caspian Sea. Read how they solved their issue using RMR® technology
2. CNR, UK North Sea
Hole instability problems with stuck pipe led to well abandonments. Read how RMR® was used to solve this issue, which resulted in a stable hole with no problems and the fastest 20” casing run.
3. BP, Sakhalin Island
Russian environmental protection regulations forbid any discharge of cuttings after the conductor is set. Read about how these reguations were met using the RMR® system.
4. BP, Egypt
BP Egypt wished to install service casing at about 1,085m. However, experienced a lot challenges. Read about how standard RMR® equipment was modified for this operation.
5. INPEX, Browse Basin
Soft sand tends to fall into the wellbore, causing pack-offs and stuck pipe, which can prevent casing being run to dept. Read how this issue was solved using RMR® without the extra time and cost of 20”casing.
6. Equinor, Gulf of Mexico
Statoil planned to drill an exploration well in an area known for shallow geo-hazards. Read how RMR® was used in order to minimise risks.
Case Studies With Managed Pressure Cementing Technology
1. BP, Caspian Sea: Cement 22" Surface Casing and isolate notorious sands
The cementing of top-hole sections in narrow pressure windows has traditionally been highly problematic. This is due to cement slurry loss, shallow water and gas flow. Read about how MPC was used to solve this problem.
2. BP, Caspian Sea: Top-hole Cementing
Presence of high-pressure shallow waterand gas in the Caspian region, notoriousfor its unconsolidated formations, hadpreviously imposed a lot of costs on BP. Learn how MPC was vital to enable effective top-hole cementing.
